The Sacred Lands Alliance

By Living Room Realty, May 23, 2019

Supporting a more just future for the peoples of this land

Land acknowledgement is a transformative act that works to undo the intentional erasure of Indigenous peoples. We can’t undo the past, but we can absolutely shape the future.

Not long ago, SW Portland was the hunting grounds of the Tualatin Kalapuya and the Clackamas Chinook. When the government set about giving the land away to Euro-American settlers in the 1850s, Hotchkiss Socrates Tryon claimed the valley which is now his namesake park.

Over the past few years, Tryon Life Community farm has been actively reshaping itself to counter a legacy of colonialism. To do so, “a new collective created by and for people of color has taken root on the farm. The Sacred Lands Alliance is working with TLC Farm volunteers to make the land and programs more accessible for frontline communities who have been alienated from their lands.”
